A rather common issue is something at DPDK initialization time (when you
start openvswitch-dpdk in your case) did not work as it should.
That should be a bit earlier in your log - I once answered that in a
askubuntu post and you can check the three log I added there side-by-side
and compare it to yours:

Check if your devices are found and initializing as I reported there and
let us know what the difference is if not.
